Interaction with Guests
We live downstairs. Guests are welcome to knock on the interconnected door at any time for information or a chat. However guests can be completely private as they have their own separate side entrance.
The neighbourhood is quiet as house is in a residential street. As the bay is quite small, there are never large crowds using the beach. The golf couse & club is very picturesque being on the ocean front. The ocean pool is very popular with guests and with ourselves as it is 5 minutes walk so no need to take anything with you but your towel, key and sunscreen.
Nearest eating and drinking venues are the RSL club which also provides reasonably priced and varied meals. The golf club is more expensive but still good value. There is also a Chinese restaurant and fast food places within a 10 minute walk and some excellent cafés especially the beach café.
Bus to city within 5 minute walk. Larger selection of buses 10 minutes walk.
No on site parking but plenty of free street parking. Taxi from the airport takes about 20 mins and costs $40-$50 or many people use Uber.
Other Things to Note
If you are a golfer, apparently this is golfer heaven!
We are an easygoing couple and we can say the same for our guests so far. We expect you would treat the apartment as if you were in your own home and also smoking inside the apartment or loud music after 9pm.
Please switch off air-con or heating when going out. It only takes a few minutes to heat or cool when you return.
We are from Ireland, but have lived in Sydney for over 30 years. We enjoy travelling, theatre, movies, nature, walking, and meeting people. We are happy to help in any way we can, but you can be assured of total privacy if you just want to relax and do your own thing.
